WordVision was a word processor from 1983 for the IBM PC with some features unique for the time period, such as unerase, automatic document saving, and long descriptive filenames at a time when DOS did not contain that support. From an interesting technical standpoint, the installation disk was not DOS-formatted: You booted from it to create working copies.  The typical error beep was also replaced with a more pleasing "chime" sound while the program operated. This archive was...

TurboPower Software's Object Professional, an object-oriented library for Turbo Pascal.   These files were made open-source along with all of TurboPower's content, but this specific library was somehow missed when all of the code was uploaded to the SourceForge repository.  That repo is now abandoned.

The submitted MPEG-4 file contains additional commentary on audio track 2, and is also compatible with iPhone/iPod/AppleTV devices.

But when that hardware becomes yesterday's news, it is those very tricks that cause such demos to become lost to history. For half a decade, Hornet has been working on the Mindcandy series, a collection of DVDs reproducing demos to the best of their ability. But what's involved in that process? In this talk given at Block Party 2008, Trixter of Hornet...
